I built one a while ago, too, but it was not reliable. I'm not sure
if it was the homebrew circuit or lirc, but it would miss digits.
What I posted earlier about the MyBlaster doesn't even use lirc, so it
takes out that possible source of errors. I find it rock-solid on my
DISH box, which I cannot say for a homebrew. Sure, the homebrew only
cost $6 or so, but it definitely was not worth it.
Just my $0.02.
